INVENTORY !!!!!!!

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone hope all is well. I believe one of most important thing in collecting is doing inventory. Whatever you do don't do what I did. I waited to long. Now there is soft where for this. I hope those that use it will list it below and the benefits of what they have. Now I have been collecting 30 years. All my coins are protected that's another thing you should do. My coins are in metal boxes with foam that holds slabs. Now after thirty years I know were most of my coins are. Some I find I don't remember that I had it. I started doing my inventory a few months ago. I'm old fashion I bought an accounting book and it works out great. Everything about the coin goes in one line across. Even how much I paid for it. That's important. Would you believe I still have about three or four months to go? That's because I waited to long. Start with your first coins. Do not wait. Eagles with eagles Franklin's with Franklin's. I even have the amount of silver in ever coin I then add it up on the bottom of the page. This is not fun. However its easy to use. I have a picture of every coin in my registry . So that's taken care of. Putting coins in date order takes time. You don't have to go thru what I'm going thru. Start now. Don't wait. I mean I enjoy it because I like looking at my coins. Soon I will know where every cent is .I open the book to the table of contents. Cents are on page one. Slabs start on page five. So you see it does pay off. The only thing is finding time to do this. I have to make time be wise I didn't do it when I should of. Even my books are in order . I'm at the point were I can open the book and go to any slab any date and grade. Yes I should of started years ago. But when I'm done I will make a copy of every page and keep that in the safe . I hope your getting the idea of how important this is. If you want to sell your collection and the buyer comes over and says do you have the 2013 reverse proof set. Open your book and right away you say yes or no. Sets I have in another section. Year grade what TPG how much I paid and the cert numbers. Not in that order. Everything on the label goes in the book. And I check every cert number twice. That's important. So you have an idea what has to be done. Either with soft where or by paper and pen. Its not easy. That's why I suggested you start from the time you start collecting. It will save you the time and energy later when your done or go to sell your collection. So if you haven't started I suggest you start. It will make life easy for all. Thanks for taking a look I hope you start today!
